This project is part of a larger, multi-sited project on the role of the postsecondary education in facilitating reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, USA and Australia. It builds on my scholarly interest in two apparently disparate but deeply conceptually connected developments in postsecondary education in these countries – international student recruitment, and enhancing Indigenous content in teaching and learning.
The proposed project focuses on Canada. It aims to study how Indigenizing and internationalizing initiatives sit in relation to each other, how they are in tension/conflict, and/or offer a historic opportunity for reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians, and whether/how the postsecondary sector is facilitating dialogue between Indigenous, diasporic and international students. In the process, the project aims to challenge the mutual disconnect between ‘Indigenizing’ and ‘internationalizing’ initiatives in the public and policy realms.
